"The millennial generation reasoning being that really, the message ends, why would you go to all the trouble to add that one little dot at the end?"

SUCH a drag, that final period. A nanosecond of my time, that'll never come back!

What did they taste like without punctuation


There is something Freudian going on with this obsession of eating kinfolk

It's like you left Grandma off the original menu and you didn't want to take her off the list

I guess the silence of the lambs was your favourite flick

Agreed, RD. It was such a strange experience reading that statement about dropping the period. I can't see that approach getting much support.
